Fedora :: Allow User To Save/edit/delete Documents In A Folder But Not Delete That Folder?

Sep 6, 2011

Recently I setup a system for a non-technical user. He is only using Firefox, Pidgin and OpenOffice for about 2 hours a day. I have created a folder "/home/jim/myFiles" where he can save his document files. But Jim has accidentally deleted his myFiles folder on 2 occasions. He had intended to delete a file in that folder. Is there a way to lock the folder so that the user and create/read/write documents in that folder but not delete the folder itself?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Folder (.fuse_hidden* File)?

May 30, 2011

I am running the latest version of Ubuntu (Ubuntu 11.04) which i setup as a dual boot OS with Windows XP SP3. I was listening to my MP3s using the Banshee music player on Ubuntu. My MP3s reside on an NTFS drive (which I mounted in Ubuntu to hear the MP3s). Via the Banshee player I deleted all songs from a particular folder and thought nothing of it until I later booted into Windows.

I saw the folder that had the songs I had deleted the songs and and thought I'd delete the folder as well except that I couldn't. It said the file might be corrupted. I logged backed into Ubuntu (Windows XP was shutdown not hibernated as I remember hearing that on Hibernating, you can't properly delete/copy files on Windows partitions). In Ubuntu too, I wasn't able to delete this folder - either via the Folder explorer or via terminal. I see a file named ".fuse_hidden0000041b00000017" along with some other files I had deleted (in Turquoise colour). I didn't see any posts in this forum with a help on resolving this issue

Ubuntu :: Password Protect A Folder On A Flash Drive?

Sep 3, 2010

I have a folder on my flash drive where I keep sensitive info (important numbers, passwords, etc.) and would like to protect this info in the event that someone gets a hold of this drive.

I figured the best method was encryption so I started experimenting with gpg, but I encountered problems as mentioned here:

[URL]

I still haven't found a solution so I'm looking into possible alternatives. As shown in the above thread, someone recommended using eCryptfs or an encfs directory. Before I spend anymore time researching this stuff, has anyone tried using these before? Do they work well and do you think these would suit my needs?

The only other alternative I can think is just compressing the folder into a password protected rar file. Would this work well or would I be leaving my data vulnerable?

ALSO, I would a prefer a solution that would still allow me to backup this folder using rsync. I like to keep and up-to-date backup of my entire flash drive by syncing it to another flash drive using rsync.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba - Access Folder To Delete Or Restore From The Recycle Bin Folder

Apr 24, 2010

I'm using ubuntu server 9.10 for a home build NAS. Everything is working great just have one more thing to figure out. I have Samba set up to access my files and I set up a recycle feature so anything deleted will get moved to a Recycled folder. (I learned this the hard way after hitting delete key by accident while browsing the shares in windows. Lost 100 GB of data)

Now it is for the most part working but the permissions on folders isn't getting set right. If I delete a file in a share I can go to Recycle bin folder and delete the file for good. But if I delete a folder I can not access that folder to delete or restore from the Recycle bin folder. I have to chmod the folder before I can do anything with it. Anything I can change to get folders deleted via windows to have the right permissions when it is moved to the Recycle bin folder?

Ubuntu :: Delete Remaster Folder From Home Folder?

Jun 13, 2011

I have Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 updated to 9.10 and have downloaded Remaster from Remastersys. I followed all of the instructions, which were simple enough. However, there must be some instructions missing as the process failed. Working with Remaster through Synaptic Manager, the iso was downloaded into my "home" folder into its own Remaster folder. It was not the iso, like you get when downloading a distro from the Internet, which downloads just an iso onto the Desktop. Inside the folder were a bunch of empty files (I know, because I opened them) and an iso . At this point the Remaster instruction stop. They do not say what to do with the other files, or what they have to do with the iso of my Ubuntu layout. So, like any other iso (once I knew which one was the iso of my setup), I double clicked on it and it ran me through the process of accessing the DVD to burn it. Which I did. I tested it and it failed with some kind of message to the effect that certain files were missing or it could not read it. So, I thought, I would have to do the 'hunt and peck' method and experiment a few times like I did with the ordinary distro downloads until I get it right. But first, I would have to dump the Remaster folder in the "home" folder since it took up so much space on my hard drive. Wrong! I come to find out it is in something called "root" and that I do not have permission to do anything with it but "copy" it. Great. Just great! Now what do I do. I tried to change permissions, but was not allowed to do that either. The only thing I could think of - and dread - was the idea of having to wipe my hard drive and go through the whole reinstall procedures, which takes me days, just because Remaster has locked itself into my system - and there is no 'back door' to get out of it.

Ubuntu Security :: AppArmor Protect Devices And Limit Their Access To The File System?

Nov 9, 2010

This might sound really stupid, so you'll all have to excuse my lacking knowledge. I read that USB attacks get more and more common, like putting in an USB stick with a malicious autorun script on it, and it's game over. Can AppArmor protect devices and limit their access to the file system?

Ubuntu One :: Delete A Top Level Folder?

Jun 19, 2010

I'm using my free 2Gb of Ubuntu One space to back up some stuff and synch files between a laptop and desktop.

I synched a folder ok to try it out. Then I used the FAQ at

[URL]

to manually unsynchronise the folder as the right click option was greyed out.

But now I want to delete that folder from Ubuntu One using the Web site. The 'top level' folder does not have a 'delete' option. I've deleted everything under it but just want to get rid of the husk.

Ubuntu :: Can't Delete A Folder - Permissions ?

Sep 24, 2010

I have a 500GB iomega portable HD. I used Gparted to split the drive into two partitions, a fat32 of roughly 400GB and an EXT4 partition of roughly 100GB.

On my EXT4 partition, there is a folder called lost+found. I can't delete it because I need to be root, yet my account has administrator priviliges (but I CAN rename the folder). I can't create other folders on this partition, nor can I copy-paste and files on there either.

Basically, that partition is unuseable. In the properties of the folder, it says that I am not the owner so I cannot change the permissions. (It is definitely MY hard drive)
All options are greyed out.

How do I give myself permission to use this EXT4 partition?
